Happy Birthday, Mr Dickens!

Posted on 7th February 2012 by simonbeattie

Today is Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday.  To mark it, I thought I would share a ‘novel’ Victorian card game published, I would guess, around 1858 (as there are no cards for Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, or Our Mutual Friend).  I’ve actually had two sets of these cards, and although the pictures were the same on both, the typography was different, showing just how high demand must have been at the time.
